October 3, 2011

Dear Family,

Wow I was really worried when I read the heading of your email, but then it made me laugh when it was about football. It is too bad that the Aggies aren't doing too hot, but I bet everything will be fine. Elder Manning is getting home this coming winter, and he'll lead the aggies to great things. I'm happy to hear that conference was so good, but I guess that's not really a surprise, it's always great! I'm really excited to watch it this upcoming week. We just watch a session a day throughout the week with our districts. Conference on a mission is really really cool, I feel like I get so much more from it than I ever have in my life.

This week was a really great week. Elders Thomas, LaCroix, and I had a great week. Yes there are three of us. It is a little bit crazy, I feel kind of like I'm in a gang. I just walk around and when people are like "no I don't want to talk" Elder Thomas and LaCroix come out and are like "are you sure that's what you wanted to say?"... No I'm just kidding, we don't quite do that haha. It's just a lot of fun all the time though. Someone always has something fun to say, and when we talk about investigators we're basically in a council so we can get a lot of good ideas. Elder LaCroix brought the miracles with him though. We taught a lot of lessons this last week it was a lot of fun. We worked really really hard. We also had a really really cool miracle that I wanted to tell you about. A few weeks ago Elder Thomas and I went to stop by some people that said that the missionaries could come back. When we stopped by one guy it turned that he had moved away and a mom and her little family had moved in. We asked if maybe she would be interested to hear more and she said that she was. It didn't work out to teach her for the last little while, but the other night we stopped by and she let us in. We had a really good lesson about families and how the Gospel will bless her family. We invited her to be baptized to receive these blessings and she accepted, so we set up a lesson for the following day. When we went back the next day to teach her we found out that she had read half of the Book of Mormon the night before. She liked it so much she just stayed up all night reading. She's already gained a good testimony of the Gospel. We're very excited to work with her for the next while. I love missionary work.

Thanks for the email this week. It's always nice to hear from you. I hope that you have a great week, and I'm way excited to hear from you. As for what I need I think I'm pretty good. For Christmas I really liked last year how you sent me General Conference on cd. I'd really like that again, that's a suggestion I'd have. And I'd really like a copy of Josh Groban's Christmas cd maybe. That would be great! Thanks!
